When Truck Accidents Cause Harm, We Help People Rebuild & Move On

Per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, commercial truckers are not allowed to drive more than 10 hours or work more than 15 hours at a time without an 8 hour rest period. However, these rules are so widely disregarded that some truckers refer to the logbooks that they track their hours in as "comic books". However, it is no laughing matter that commercial trucks are involved in higher overall crash rates than passenger vehicles.

In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records an average of 90+ fatalities every year in Virginia from crashes involving a large truck.

Virginia Truck Accident Statistics

According to data provided by the NHTSA (2014):

  • There were 90 fatalities from truck crashes.
  • Rockingham County had the highest number of fatal trucking accidents.
